    Simple Press is working good. I'm using the newest version. And it's quite simple to manage. I did everything without having to use their pay-forum.

    Really, that sounds promising. The older version is hard to setup and understand. Thanks, I will try it out. I have multisite set up currently and logins work across all sites, which is nice. I'm sure the new version is the same.

    Forgot to mention one thing I like about your site is the yellow arrows you have. It really catches the eye and helps usability.

    Overall nice and fresh design.

    If you want to make it look even better then...

    - In the Featured Listing: Move the price tag up to the same level as the Title
    - The corners of the boxes/blocks are mixed... meaning some have rounded corners and some have straights... use either rounded or straight.
    - Make new buttons.. gray color does not call users to take action to press it. Use something brighter. And the hover over yellow color in the button like to jump into my eyes.
    - The "special" font you use for the titles does not complement your site.


    I absolutely LOVE:

    - The Negotiable check under the price tag
    - Highlights of featured listing
    - Scroll back up button

    I have the vision but I have no skills like you have, samcy. Well done!

    Hi binh,

    thanks for that revue! I'm also not really happy with the things that you mention. I guess i will change them soon.

    btw: you can get that scroll up button as a plugin here: http://www.mattvarone.com/featured-c...ynamic-to-top/

    Open a thread in the forum if you need help for any other things.

    Hello Samcy,

    I was sure that I posted to your thread but something must have gone wrong. I love your website and have def added you to people to stay in touch with. Thank you for sharing your site and the tips! The only thing i would add on your site is maybe a custom favicon to help build ur brand. Good luck with your site; i am confident it will grow and you are onto something

    Your site has inspired me to work on my classifieds and add a few custom things to it. I am currently researching how to add the featured crows and the new tags to my site. Also am finding my site loading too slow so trying to figure out how to speed it up.

    If you have a moment, my site is afrocomplete.com...

    Now everything will go it's way. I took my site online and created a site on facebook. I compelled my friends to "like" it ( ) and now i hope that it will grow.

    Thanks again to all of you for the reviews and comments.

    Samcy,

    You might want to create your own favicon.
